High-Res PNG-CX Summer Can 12oz Wet w-Lime Left (1)

Summer is officially two, short months away. And the perfect beer for summer? Corona Extra. Obviously. Even their VP of marketing knows: “When you think of summer, you think Corona. Popping off the cap and dropping in a lime, instantly transports you to that care-free-state-of-mind no matter where you are. No one does summer like Corona, and we think this is the perfect way to capture the essence of what the brand means to our consumers.”

    If you’re looking for another beneficial reason to sip your favorite wine, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s just say based on this week’s discovery, we wouldn’t be surprised to find out that Einstein had a glass of Merlot in his hand while he developed the theory of relativity.

    Celebrities, they’re just like us. They take tequila shots then wake up the next morning with a pounding headache and their hand still in a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos.

    Drink Weed Every Day

    Cocktails / April 18, 2017 / No Comments.

    You’ve heard of cannabis brownies.

    Cannabis gummy bears.

    Even cannabis artisan chocolates.

    And now, there are cannabis cocktails.

    Since we’re not quite evolved enough (YET) to legally serve these concoctions at your local bar or restaurant, Seattle-based Craft Elixirs created small-batch cannibals syrups that contain local seasonal flavors, natural sweeteners, and your favorite strains of weed, so you can make a ganga-laced drink at home.

    Is The End of Craft Beer Near?

    Beer / April 17, 2017 / No Comments.

    Despite the fact that we’re all more alike than we’d like to admit, we get a surreal amount of gratification when we think we’re part of something the majority of our constituents aren’t. It makes us cool, different, unique and totally alternative. It could be the music we listen to, our taste in television, our style, lifestyle choices, etc. It can even come down to, and you guessed it, the type of alcohol we drink. It’s from our desire for individuality that craft beers were born from.

    Things you might associate with Easter:

    • Going to church.
    • Big fancy hats.
    • A bunny.
    • Hunting for eggs. (“Jeez Dad, you really mailed it in this year, that egg is just sitting in the middle of the lawn.”)
    • Wondering what a bunny and eggs have to do with each other, or with anything, really.
    • Ham.

    Things you probably don’t associate with Easter:

    • Drinking.

    But while Easter isn’t a big drinking holiday, it is a holiday, and therefore you’re probably going to do some drankin’.

    Well, it’s official. Dreams really do come true.

    “Beereal” (cereal + beer) is a THING. And a lot of breweries are jumping on the bandwagon. Most recently, Somerville Brewing Company of Massachusetts has collided your childhood and adulthood into one little can. They just released ‘Saturday Morning’, a Belgian-style ale that’s made using Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries. Yeah- you read that correctly.

    We love to drink. Drinking in America wouldn’t exist if we didn’t. But more often than not we find ourselves wanting to enjoy a good drink without the repercussion of having to drag ourselves to bed at the end of the night. Plus we needed some drinks to share with coworkers, in-laws, any other people we’d rather not get intoxicated off one drink in front of. So in hopes of future drinking without any regrets, here are some of our favorite low-key, low-alcohol content cocktails. Drink up.
